Transcript of 1984 Dream/ Diary Entry

1984 Winston's First Diary Entry April 4th, 1984: " Last night to the flicks. All war films.
One very good one of a ship full of refugees
being bombed somewhere in the mediterranean.
" "We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness." "His mother's memory tore at his heart because she died loving him,
when he was too young and selfish to love her in return, and because somehow,
he did not remember how, she had sacrificed herself to a conception
of loyalty that was private and unalterable." Winston's mom: Golden Country: Dream & Diary Entries O'Brien: Dreams: Haunting memories of Winston's mom
O'Brien "place where there is no darkness Julia "Golden country" Winston's affairs Diaries: First Diary Entry Winston's affairs "Hope lies in the proles" "Before the glorious revolution" Three slogans "Seven years it must be -- he had dreamed that he was walking through a pitch-dark room." Winston has an overwhelming desire to possess the diary. The reason why he buys the diary is to get rid of his restless monologue, he has had in his
head for years.
"Last night to the flicks. All war films. One very good one of a ship full of refugees being bombed somewhere in the Mediterranean." "There was a middleaged woman might have been a jewess sitting up
in the bow with a little boy three years old in her arms.... All the time covering
him up as much as possible as if she thought her arms could keep the bullets
off of him." A member of the Inner Party, and has a post so important which is later revealed that
he is part of the Thought Police. About: Winston feels an attachment to him because of O'Brien's
unperfect political orthodoxy. "I am with you," O'Brien seemed to be saying to him. "I
know precisely what you are feeling. I know all about your
contempt, your hatred, your disgust. But don't worry, I am on your side." Winston looks for O'Brien and asks if there is such a thing like "The
Brotherhood." O'Brien asks Winston and Julia a series of questions. O'Brien
reminds Winston that he will not, for any reason protect him. Towards the end
of their conversation O'Brien says, "We shall meet again-- if we do meet again--."
Winston finishes his sentence asking if it's "the place where there is no darkness." The place where there is no darkness is in the Ministry Of Love. In Winston's cell. Winston finds himself musing, once he glances at his diary he discovers
that his pen was writing large neat capital letters. He still keeps on writing, because
it made no difference whether he stopped or not.
Winston committed Thoughtcrime. Thoughtcrime: unapproved thoughts Winston's Affairs Winston has been dreaming of the "Golden Country" for a long time. "The girl with dark hair was coming toward him across the field.
With what seemed a single movement she tore off her clothes and flung them disdainfully aside." The girl with dark hair is Julia "It was three years ago. It was on a dark evening, in a narrow side street near one of the big railway stations.... There was nobody else in the street, and no telescreens. She said two dollars.... When I saw her in the light she was quite an old woman, fifty years old at least. But I went ahead and did it just the same." -Proles that prostitute themselves usually have thick make-up
on. Party women don't paint their faces. *Julia wore thick make-up also when she was with Winston The memory of the prole haunted him. The party is inclined to encourage prostitutions. When Julia makes arrangements with Winston,
Winston finds himself in the "Golden Country" "It's the Golden Country-- almost, he murmured. "The Golden Country?" "It's nothing really. A landscape I've seen sometimes in a dream." When Winston is in jail, he finds himself hallucinating that he is in
the Golden Country. "He could feel the short springy turf under his feet and
the gentle sunshine on his face."

He starts to yell out to Julia. "Julia Julia Julia,my love Julia."
"She had seemed to be not merely with him, but inside of him." "If there is hope it lies in the proles. Until they become conscious they
will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become
conscious." The proles are the lower class. They have very little possessions; but they mostly have freedom because they aren't being spied on as much as the Party members. Proles: Before the Revolution: Winston had a copy of the children's history textbook and copied
a passage. It said London was a very filthy place, children had to work 12 hours a day; they were fed stale breadcrusts and water.
"These rich men were called capitalist.... Capitalist owned everything in the world, all the houses, all the factories, and all the money.... When an ordinary person spoke to a capitalist he had to cringe and bow to him." Winston wanted to know what life was like before the revolution. The Three Slogans: War Is Peace

Freedom Is Slavery

Ignorance Is Strength Helps party keep ignorant life in other places. Party members would have to obey Oceania government. You would have to believe in everything they say, like doublethink. *Doublethink- Doublethink is a way for you to think one thing but believe another. "Don't worry, Winston; you are in my keeping for seven years
I have watched over you. Now the turning point has come.
I shall save you. I shall make you perfect." Winston starts to dedicate his Diary
to O'Brien. Winston has had nightmares about something
he dreads:
"He was standing in front of a wall of darkness, and
on the other side of it there was something unendurable,
something too dreadful to be faced." O'Brien had tortured him, even with the rats. Throughout
the whole torturing process, Winston still feels like O'Brien
will somehow save him. Winston has a dream of his mom, he remembers how he stole
the last portion of chocolate out of his little sister's hand. He ran away, once he
came back they were both gone. Winston's mom had become spiritless when her husband left. "His mind went back to another dream of 2 months ago. Exactly as his mother had sat on
the dingy white-quilted bed, with the child clinging to her, so she had sat in the sunken ship, far underneath him and drowning deeper everyminute but still looking up at him through the
darkening water." "Under the spreading chestnut tree I sold you and you sold me."
